What I've been up to!

Hello everyone!
After 4 hectic months, I finally have an update for you!  So sorry for not posting since Christmas, everything has been rather busy, yet very exciting!

First of all, I'd like to say happy Spring! The weather here in Devon is noticeably improving (apart from the odd spot of rain!) and it's lovely that the weather is getting that little bit warmer. 

Here are some little previews of what I've been up to...
For New Year, I went to New York with my husband and daughter. I have to say it was without a doubt the most amazing experience of my life! We stayed for 4 nights and 5 days and loved every single minute of it!

My daughter and I stood by the Wollman ice rink in Central Park; one of my highlights of the trip!

Next up, here is our kitchen update.  Hopefully you will prefer how it looks 4 months on!
We are so pleased with how the kitchen is looking, a real transformation! It is not 100% complete as we still have a few little bits to finish, like painting cupboards etc. 

 (I will be writing some further blog posts about these in more detail!) 

Finally, thought I'd show you my Easter decorations for this Spring.  It is such a lovely time of year and I have collected loads of lovely Easter deccies over the years!

 My fabric chicken came out for the second year running! 

Hope you have enjoyed reading this quick update and I'll be back with more posts soon.

Hugs, Charlotte xx  


  1. Welcome back! Your kitchen looks so beautiful now! Oh and I still remember the chicken from last year :).


  2. Hi Goedele, how lovely to see you! Love your new name, hope you are well. Glad you like the kitchen, thank you, it is very nice not to be living in a building site! We are so pleased with it but still quite a lot to do and lots of things still don't have a home! Nice you remember the chicken :0)
    Take care and thank for popping in xx

  3. Beautiful picture of you and your daughter and sounds like your trip was awesome!

    I love your kitchen, it's a wonderful room! Those remodels are lots of work but always so worth it in the end. Enjoy your new kitchen! =]

    1. Hi Angie, thank you so much for popping in and thanks for coming back after I have been away so long from blogging!

      The holiday was great and lovely to escape the mess at home, horrible to come back to it though!

      Still plenty to do in the kitchen, but you are right it has been worth it.

      Thanks again, lovely to see you. Hugs, Charlotte xx
